Lüneburg Heath Nature Park
In the north of the area known as the Lüneburg Heath in northern Germany, lies the Lüneburg Heath Nature Park (German: Naturpark Lüneburger Heide) with an area of 1,130 square kilometres (440 sq mi). In the centre of the nature park is the Lüneburg Heath Nature Reserve with an area of 23,440 hectares (57,900 acres).
The nature park belongs to the former province (Regierungsbezirk) of Lüneburg and, after its expansion in 2007, includes parts of the districts of Harburg, Lüneburg and Soltau-Fallingbostel. The Lüneburg Heath Nature Park is bordered in the north by Buchholz, in the east by Lüneburg, in the south by Soltau and in the west by Neuenkirchen. It lies roughly 40 kilometres (25 mi) south of Hamburg, 70 km east of Bremen and 90 km north of Hanover. It was established as early as 1922, initially with 21,000 hectares (52,000 acres) of nature reserve. In 1993 this area was increased to 23,440 hectares (57,900 acres). By the beginning of 2007 the area of the nature reserve almost coincided with the area of the nature park. On 14 February 2007 the park was expanded to 113,000 hectares (280,000 acres). The areas added included various protected areas (Landschaftsschutzgebiete).
